9th Street Tavern Now Open in Capitol District
The 9th Street Tavern and Grill is now open and located one block south of the Century Link Center at 902 Dodge St. The new sports bar and grill hosts a weekly happy hour from 4-6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and offers 27 televisions tuned to all sports coverage. With Nebraska native Chef Andrew Richardson at the helm, the 9th Street Tavern offers classic tavern cuisine, currently serving its comfy winter menu with items such as Shepard’s pie, stews and bison meatloaf. In addition, the 9th Street Tavern offers a signature drink menu with both domestic and craft beers on tap.
“We think this is a great neighborhood with three hotels and 500 apartment within a block or two. We also feel we will be the premier spot and venue for pre- and post-event patrons from the CenturyLink Center and TD Ameritrade Park,” says owner Mark Mittlieder. “Parking can be tight in many downtown areas, but we benefit from MECA parking during events. When there are no events, we have great parking along 9th Street,” Mittlieder said.

Family Dining Week
Mayor Jean Stothert has signed a proclamation declaring this week “Family Dining Week,” ending Sat., Oct. 26. The Mayor and Live Well Omaha Kids are asking that families take a pledge to dine together more often. According to Live Well Omaha Kids, “’Family Dining’ means cooking and eating at home together as a family. Studies show that kids who eat at home with their families are more likely to try new foods and eat more nutritious foods, such as whole grains, low-fat dairy, vegetables, fruit and lean meat. Family dining also benefits for family communication and supports healthy teen development.” Live Well Omaha Kids wants to know what works for families at home. Look them up on Facebook and share your success stories on how dining together has bonded your family.
